I love reading History. I find it more fascinating than most fiction. Although a registered Independent voter, my political and social views lean to a conservative outlook. Both major political parties are, in my opinion, totally bankrupt in ideals and intent. Both pull too far in their respective direction, and all have sold themselves to the highest bidders. A New England Yankee, I have great admiration for the founders of our nation. The early ones, Washington, Adams Jefferson and others put their lives on the line. Add Madison, Franklin and more. We are most fortunate that our Revolution/Rebellion was organized and led by educated, enlightened men (not to forget Abigail and some other uncelebrated women) who thought far into the future, and it took other men like Jackson, Lincoln, Teddy Roosevelt and FDR to maintain the hopes & dreams of millions. France's Revolution started well, but was taken over by lesser men, and fell into the Reign of Terror, and the Guillotine. Russia suffered Lenin & Trotsky. We were luckier! I cannot get through the day without reading the Comics. Regular comics first, then the Political 'toons. Unemployed for 35 months, I finally landed a good position with a good company! However, now I have less time to comment, (a relief to some) and less time to read other comments. Just typing out my gripes & diatribes gives me a feeling of being a little less helpless, and I feel better having said it. Sometimes I goof. I do like reading other comments: occasionally I learn something.

    I am at the point where I feel Washington D.C. is now totally disfunctional. (Obscenely wealthy, too!)

    ANYONE WHO VOTES FOR ANY REPUBLICAN IN 2020 IS either very wealthy, or a fool.

    The entire country should be enraged about this, but….

    Yet again, right in our faces! Such is the contempt trump and the republicans have for the rest of us.

    The Republicans are certainly transparent. They steal, lie, betray and undermine this country right in plain view for all to see! Although some still refuse to see.

    George Herbert Walker Bush stood by while Saddam Hussein gassed the Kurds, who helped in Desert Storm, saying it was not our problem. And now, trumpy’s betrayal. Republicans, both! To you working class Americans who supported trump: Do you still think he cares about you? Do you think the Republican Party gives any thought to your welfare?

    I am not a trumpite. Most of the candidates need to be more specific about how they will implement, how they will fund their proposals and what regulations they will restore.

    Too many wild promises. The Dems are not showing the American people that they have viable platform. The way things are going, the election will be like the Dems charging the wall at Fredricksburg!
